the pbs vote, so who knows what that's going to mean in some of these battleground states. >>reporter: we're going to get some reaction from some of the students over here. the professor just told you guys what you're going to talk about in class this morning. your reaction to anything that you saw last night, comments, concerns, change your mind, anything. >> well, big bird for me was obviously the winner. i mean, he basically broke twitter. but the big loser in my opinion was definitely jim lehrer, though. i felt bad for the guy. i really sympathized with him. >> what about you? >> what stuck out for me was the line of attack that obama decided to take against mitt romney. he didn't mention the 47% comments that he should have mentioned, didn't mention romney's job record in massachusetts when they started talking about jobs, didn't mention bain capital once. obama was on the defensive much more than he was on the offensive, didn't dispute mitt romney's $716 medicare claim which has some truth, accuracy debate to it. he had a full opportunity to do that and didn't do it.
